Shrewsbury Town midfielder Ebou Adams has been handed a call-up to the Gambia national team for their forthcoming matches.

The 21-year-old has enjoyed minimal loan time since moving to Montgomery Waters Meadow on loan from Norwich City in the Summer, coming off the bench five times in the league in addition to two starts and another cameo appearance in cup competitions

Alas, he has done enough in his limited time on the pitch to catch the eye of Scorpions’ manager Sang Ndong who has named the former Dartford man in his squad for their two immediate games, which follow a camp in Morocco – the place where the Canaries’ loanee will meet up with his teammates.

He joins Mustapha Carayol (Nottingham Forest) and Modou Barrow (Reading – On loan from Swansea City) as representatives from the English Football League, with the Greenwich-born man qualifying to be eligible for the country through his parents, both of whom were born in the west African nation.
